The value of high magnification in clinical medicine (via a surgical microscope) has been well known for more than 50 years. The value of high magnification in dentistry (via a dental operating microscope) has been well known for 20 years in endodontics, for 14 years in periodontics3 and for over 10 years in restorative dentistry.
Why work with a microscope?
The operating microscope (OM) is not restricted to endodontics, nor is it an instrument only designed to search for the entrance of the canals or to check the quality of a preparation. It can be used permanently in omnipractice and replaces the use of magnifying glasses in a very favorable way. The fatigue of your eyes when focalizing (with or without magnifying glasses) disappears with the microscope because the eyes look at infinite and can rest in an operation field, which is always perfectly lit without any shade.
The magnification trough the eyepiece gives you an extraordinary vision in 3D, which allows you to improve the precision and the quality of your work, and therefore to increase your satisfaction. The more, you eliminate the toxic positions of your spine; the microscope imposes a physiological position, which often relieves from spine problems of which many dentists suffer.
Adding a camera to the OM with a screen for the patients allows an unequaled communication with them and their accompanying persons. All the explanations become clearer.
The benefits of the dental operating microscope are stated below
Microscopic provide 3X to 30X magnification with the ability to change views with a simple turn. Microscope offers a deeper depth of field view and wider field of view than traditional dental equipment. The main advantage of dental microscope is that enable dentists to see things that they would not be able to distinguish with the naked eye and also using dental microscopes can increases accuracy and optimises performances.
Increased Precision and Accuracy
The increased magnification allows the dentist to access small, narrow canal opening without removing the tooth structure. Debris that must be removed from the root canal before filling the root canal space is also more easily identified.
Recent statistical data revealed that, “Utilizing a dental surgical microscope is associated with advanced ergonomics as confirmed by over 75% of dentists.” Using dental microscopes really deliver on the promise of comfortable sit-down dentistry, i.e. with the use of this microscope it’s no longer necessary to bend your body to obtain the correct view. Dental operating microscopes that come with advanced lighting and angled optical systems are also well-designed to be mounted on walls, ceilings or tables.
Outstanding LED Lightings
Lighting is the important thing to look for while choosing medical equipment. Dental microscopes are equipped with advanced lightings made of LED that cast a shadow less illumination and also comes with a cooler temperature.
Advanced Optical Systems
Dental operating microscopes now stand out from other dental operating equipment mainly due to their optical efficiency and high quality visualisation.
